International Women’s Day

Marie Tharp

Continuing our annual theme of celebrating trailblazing women in the maritime sector on International Womens Day, today we recognise Marie Tharp.

Marie’s research and development focused on mapping of the ocean floor and led to the acceptance of the continental drift theory.

With an interest in cartography from a young age she never considered it as a career as it was considered ’men’s work’.

Fortunately, she didn’t let that stop her.
